Re: “Tacoma teams with Goodwill to battle graffiti” (TNT, 12-22)

It’s great to see that the city is taking action to clean up the blight of graffiti in our neighborhoods. Using crews from Goodwill’s Go2 Property Services is a great idea, and I know from personal experience that these workers do an absolutely excellent job.

We employed workers from Go2 last spring for yard cleanup, and they did a marvelous job. Their rates are great, they were hard-working, they showed up on time (a rarity these days), worked very efficiently and we could not have been happier with their work.

In my opinion, this time the city is spending our money wisely. I hope the results are every bit as good as I would expect them to be.

Hey – I wonder if they do potholes.
